With a several years’ experience in financial planning and wealth management, Jonathan made the move to become a mortgage broker to help other Australians buy real estate and build the life they want.
Having built a solid property investment portfolio in his own right, he has long recognised that the biggest challenge in building wealth in real estate is getting approved for a home loan that best suits your long term goals.
Jonathan truly is a home loan expert that will keep in close contact with you, from your initial enquiry through to settlement and beyond. Your success is his success.

Marcus & Angela
Marcus and I would like to thank you very much for your hard work and patience during our re-mortgage. After injuring my back and having to leave work, our world and our family fell apart. Not only dealing with pain and depression, we were faced with the possibility of losing our home. After talking with you, I felt like I was speaking with a friend. Your patient and tolerant nature kept my anxiety under control, even when dealing with issues of proof of identity. At every opportunity you gave us assurances that it would all work out.
Your constant promise of communication was well fulfilled and we were kept up to date with everything that was happening along the way. Dealing with Australian Financial Securities Authority, our Mortgage Lender/s and other parties you were always professional.
Our only wish through this was to be able to move on with our lives and put the worst behind us. While I am still not working, we have been able to keep our home, be financially viable and just deal with the things I have like my health.
I can only commend Home Loan Experts through your representation. You made it easy, without stress, friendly and trusting. I felt I was in good hands all along; I cannot thank you enough for the change you have brought about in our life. I would recommend your services to friends and family alike.
